of work, journalism. we have had this monumental situation in japan, this terrible disaster. before that, we had the riots in the middle east. wars here and there. and very brave journalists go to these, not just those you see in front of cameras, but those who write to those who carried the cameras, those to get the film out. and they get very little recognition, except they do get a lot of criticism. it is always the need of political circles that they have agendas. you know what? you do have an agenda in those situations. it is to get the story and to stay alive. that is the agenda. so when you're arguing about what happened in a japan, arguing about what happened in tunis or libya, remember, the only reason you know anything about it is that some despised but very brave and journalists, men and women, cameramen, raiders, and correspondennts went there to find out for you. i will be back with a very interesting program about, believe it or not, the future of broadcasting. >> "white house chronicle" is produced in collaboration with whut howard university television. >> and now the pro

to repair a meltdown at fukushima nuclear plant in japan are dooling with radiation worries. at least 19 of them have received potentially dangerous radiation doses. three workers were hospitalized last week after stepping into a contaminated puddle. they are expected to be released tomorrow. >>> the company that operates the fukushima nuclear plant in japan faces increasing pressure to get the crisis under control. many questions about how honest it's being persist. paula talks to a researchers who warned about the vulnerability and said the company did nothing. >> reporter: the destruction a tsunami can wreak on a nuclear power plant is clear. what's not clear is whether the owners of the fukushima plant use have precluded this. one researcher says yes. he warned them. he asked the safety committee to consider this when deciding how to protect the plant. >> translator: data on tsunamis can be found in layers of the earth. my institute has been researching this. based on the area it indicates a huge tsunami occurred previously. that's why i asked the question. >> reporter: he said tep c
. >>> a major setback in the nuclear disaster in japan. there was a dangerous jump in radiation at the damaged nuclear plant. officials say radioactive tee in the water is 10 million times higher than normal, and now they can't pump the seawater into the crippled reactors because it's corroding the equipment, so now the united states is helping bring in crucial fresh water. >> the u.s. navy has spent two owe has sent two naval barges loaded with 525,000 gallons of fresh water. meanwhile the air force has sent 500 tons of battled water aboard six c-130s to sendai for people desperate to get their hands on uncontaminated water. they are based 20 miles west of tokyo, home to 3,600 service men who feel just as much wrapped up in this disaster as japan's citizens. >> our hearts here go out to them. we grieve with those that have lost everything. >> at the fukushima plant, levels of radioactive iodine in the seawater are at 1,250 levels higher than safety limits, according to officials. but they do say by the time that enters the food chain it will have diluted and be safe for humans to heat. but ho

of these minerals and has been jacking up prices and threatening to cut off nations like japan over territorial disputes. the pentagon started to study the issue a few years ago to determine what kind of miner rales go into the system and where they come from. the d.o.d. says there is no reason to ring alarm bells and the market appears to meet their needs. some are calling for more government involvement, including stockpiles, both of which are bad ideas according to our next guest, derek skizzors of the heritage foundation who studied this issue. welcome to the show. >> thanks for having me. >> you think this is overwrought, why? >> basically this has two foundations, one is rare earths are really important and the other one is the price is going way up. let's talk about rare. there's a long list, they're use inside commercial areas, i don't care and we shouldn't care. water is important, oil is important, the number of qualified engineers are important, saving deposits are important. it doesn't mean because something is important the government needs to do something. there needs to be a fail

lle, tnk you foth fm e at chne amntiohe te fusma perlain japan. operators at the plant first said radiation levels in water at one of the units was 10 million times higher than normal but now they say the huge spike in radiation levels was a mistake. let's go live to tokyo, nbc's lee cowan standing by for us. any updates in terms of what you're hearing about this, the discrepancy, have they figured out what the problem was or if 10 million times higher was incorrect? >> reporter: well, since we last talked, they have -- tepco has officially apologized for making that mistake. they say they will go back in and test that water to see what the accurate level is. they say it is still high, just not 10 million times higher than normal is what they're saying. they revealed today that they found pools like the one that those workers stepped in a couple of days ago that sent two of them to the hospital, they found similar pools in basically reactors 1, 2 and 3 and all of them have higher than normal radiation levels which makes getting in there that much more difficult. they can't go in a
.m. on the east coast, 6:00 a.m. out west. >>> we begin with confusion in japan over high radiation levels detected in the water at the troubled fukushima nuclear power plant. officials first said that radioactivity in the water at one of the units registered about 10 million times higher than normal, but within just this past hour, operators at the plant say the huge spike in those radiation levels was a mistake. let's go right to tokyo and nbc's lee cowan. so, lee, what's the latest you're hearing about this, and is there any way to sort out this confusion? >> reporter: it's confusing, isn't it, alex, at best. we just got off the phone with transnuclear safety agency, and they say they have talked to the owners of the plant, tepco, and they say those numbers just didn't seem credible, the 10 million times higher than normal radiation levels they found in a pool, so they are reassessing. they are going to revise that number, presumably downward, although we're not exactly sure at this point. and how it got to the level of testing, having a press conference some ten hours ago, and only now
at the plant. very small amounts of radiation from the nuclear disaster in japan have now been detected in hawaii, nevada, california, colorado and washington state but scientists say the radiation is in such small amounts that it poses no health threat. a quarter million demonstrators marched through london rallying against deep cuts in britain's public spending. violence broke out between police and a break-away group of demonstrators late last night. but overall the protest was peaceful. geraldine ferraro, the former new york congresswoman who became the first female vice presidential nominee on a major party ticket, died yesterday in boston. she was being treated for blood cancer. ferraro was 75. she ran with walter mondale on the 1984 democratic ticket and was defeated by ronald reagan and his vice presidential candidate george bush the elder. in ncaa basketball march madness lived up to its name last night. as connecticut held off arizona in a frantic finish to win 65-63. and the clock still hasn't struck midnight for butler, one of the cinderella teams of the tournament, as they
